13 Tips and Secrets for Walt Disney World

5) Purchase One Annual Pass Sometimes spending a little bit more can save you money in the long run. Consider purchasing an Annual Pass for one member of your party, especially if you are going to be staying off property and driving to the parks. When looking at the cost, think of how much money you will save. You will not have to buy another ticket for the Passholder. You will receive free parking at the theme parks. You will receive free PhotoPass downloads for your whole party, as long as everyone is linked to the same account. You will receive discounts on merchandise and on some dining locations. You will also get discounts on miniature golf, on movies, and more. Buying one Annual Pass can save you money in the long run. If you think that you'll vacation at Walt Disney World at least once a year, consider Annual Passes for everyone in your party. If you plan your vacations and stagger the times so that you visit twice within 52 weeks, you will be able to get two vacations out of your passes. That will most likely cost less than buying tickets two years in a row.
